I signed up for unlimited classes at a hatha yoga studio and went four times last week. After all the running it feels good to do something different and STRETCH, and my body feels stronger too.

The yoga class I signed up for was totally NOT what I expected! It was more like stretching with (very few) elements of yoga/recognizable forms/postures. At one point we were hitting our shoulders and backs like those exercises that old folks do. There were even eye and tongue exercises! Oh my.
The teacher (an older chinese woman) was quite sweet though and wore a spandex outfit with fierce neon clashings I haven’t witnessed since the early 90s. At one point, after lending me a yoga “mat” that was more like a baby’s playpen blanket (half the class had these) and pointing out that my chinese name is like a boy’s, she was correcting my breathing and said, “wow your stomach is so hard! Do you do a lot of exercise?” I said that I sometimes run. She then said: “You shouldn’t run more than 15 minutes at a time!” And then she said, to my understanding, “Because it will make you sag!” I was totally laughing on the inside.
So I will look at some of the fancier yoga studios around town.
